Ricky Williams is a man who will either stay with the Dolphins or consider retirement again. Ricky Williams is the kind of guy who has a lot of interests outside of football. You are likely to see Ricky Williams open a holistic medicine business after he gets done with football.
He may also focus with the process of combating domestic violence in a place like Miami or New Orleans. He previously played for the New Orleans Saints before he was traded and signed to a big contract with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are going to have to decide what Ricky Williams can bring to them.
I was actually under the impression that Ricky Williams still has a year left on his contract, but he does like his relationship with Ronnie Brown as a backup for the Miami Dolphins and many believe that Ricky is just trying to recoup some of the money that he lost during his first botched retirement.
It could be possible although highly unlikely that Ricky Williams would be willing to sign a contract in order to be a backup for the New
Orleans Saints. Sean Payton happens to be someone who would be willing to bring in a guy like Ricky Williams as a backup in case someone like Ladell Betts or Pierre Thomas are either not brought back or they happen to not perform well then Ricky Williams may be willing to come back to New Orleans and play a more limited role then the one he played under Mike Ditka or Jim Haslett. Jim Haslett and others within the Saints organization probably were able to deal with Ricky in the way that they wanted or that they did with other players in the organization at that time.
There are a lot of people out there who did not realize that Ricky Williams suffered from manic depression and social anxiety disorder so this is why he was not friendlier to some of his Saints teammates or some of the media out there in the city of New Orleans.
The fact of the matter is that Ricky Williams is someone who can contribute to a football team and in fact do well and build a lot of positive press again in a city like Miami. One question you have to ask is whether or not the Miami Dolphins and head coach Tony Sparano are serious about building a winner. Ricky will have to evaluate this situation and see what exactly his priorities truly are.
